Emmer, Daniel Paul (1 FEB 1939 - 28 JUL 2016)
Daniel Paul Emmer, age 77, died peacefully July 28, 2016 at the Milwaukee Catholic Home.
Dan was born February 1, 1939 in Medford to the late Peter K. and Valeria (Hirsch) Emmer.
He attended Holy Rosary Catholic Grade School and Medford High School. Following graduation in 1957 Dan joined and served proudly in the Navy as a clerk aboard the aircraft carrier, USS WASP.
After returning stateside, he moved to Milwaukee to attend Layton Art School. He always appreciated fine art. Dan then began a lifetime of research in the founding of Milwaukee, it's progress, the people, and the breweries therein. He worked as a clerk for the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department and Milwaukee County Courthouse.
After retirement, his love for the city drew him to involvement with the Milwaukee Historical Society and the Pabst Mansion where he volunteered as a dozier, did historical reenactments, including Captain Frederick Pabst at the mansion and at Forest Home Cemetery. The Edelweiss Boat Cruise on Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee River often called on him to host a Sunday tour.
He is survived by his brother Richard (Kay) Emmer, sister Mary (Robert B.) Fronk, and sister-in-law Patricia (the later Gerald) Emmer, and nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, cousins, and many endeared friends. Visitation took place on August 3 at the Feerick Funeral Home. Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on August 4 at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Milwaukee. Internment followed at Forest Home Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Dan's name may be sent to St. Anthony School, 1727 S. 9th St., Milwaukee, WI 53204 are greatly appreciated.
